No, this isn’t some hardcore, track-devouring Lotus Elise. You’re actually staring at SIN Cars’ latest offering. While the company has been building vehicles for the track, what you see here will be completely street legal.
LSXtv reports the outlandish street car is powered by an LS3 engine cranking out “at least” 450 hp. Not bad. But, when considering the car’s engineering, that power number seems immense. The SIN R1 GT tubular space-frame chassis with carbon composite panels. That means low curb weight. 2,535 pounds, to be exact.
A pushrod double-wishbone suspension with one-way adjustable Nitron coilovers, 362-mm AP Racing discs and 6-piston calipers round out what makes the SIN R1 GT a compelling weekend toy that’s able to get your groceries should you wish.
And the power is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox with a limited-slip differential. But, there is an option if you prefer rifle-precision shifting via a six-speed sequential gearbox or semi-automatic gearbox instead.
For $110,000, 0-60 comes in 3.6 seconds, an 120 clips your speedo in only 9.7 seconds. If those numbers check your wishlist, SIN Cars has announced it plans on producing 120 of these beasts per year.
